|Private Egon J Kranz,|
buried at Ft. Sheridan
Each year DANK, the Deutsch Amerikanischer National Kongress, holds a ceremony at Fort Sheridan Cemetery in Lake Forest at the graves of eight German World War II soldiers who died in captivity while being held in prison of war camps in the United States.
Germany has been a peace since 1945 and the Federal Republic of Germany has been an American ally since 1949. That is something to be thankful for.
